CM: Milan and Juventus both following midfielder hoping to follow Camavinga’s lead

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are keeping an eye on Stade Rennais midfielder Lesley Ugochukwu as their scouting in France continues, a report claims.

According to, Milan and Juventus are both monitoring the development of the 17-year-old Ugochukwu, who is certainly one of the most interesting profiles in French football. Despite his very young age, he has already made 7 appearances in Ligue 1 and 2 in the Conference League with Rennes.

The teenager plays predominantly as an anchorman in the midfield but given that he stands at 188cm he can also play centre-back. Ugochukwu dreams of retracing Edoardo Camavinga’s footsteps as the next big thing to come from the Ligue 1 club.

Milan are also closely watching the player who will turn 18 next March, with the scouting department always keeping a keen eye on young talents especially in the French market due to the presence of Geoffrey Moncada. Given that Franck Kessie may need replacing, it is unsurprising to see such a link.
